Eastern Crags Added to Peak Bouldering

Two major bouldering crags to the east of the Peak area have been added to Rockfax Digital. The two areas offer hard limestone climbing with plenty of eliminates and extensions. The information has been put together by Dave Parry with special thanks also to Mike Adams.

Both venues have had access problems, but the ‘Stones‘ and the ‘Abbey‘ are currently used extensively by walkers and climbers without problems. Please avoid doing anything that might jeopardise access – check the information on UKClimbing and the BMC RAD.

Dave Parry has written about access to the Stones here.

A third addition to Rockfax Digital is the wooded venue of Bitholmes Wood which is opposite Wharncliffe. This includes the classic Landslip Crag which is home to One Redeeming Feature and its low start Total Redemption.

They are available to subscribers to Rockfax Digital – more info here.
